Today's Break from Writing

I did it. I stopped writing and got out of the office today. It is too beautiful of a day to spend indoors. My writing can wait. Oh, I have writing deadlines just like everybody else who writes. But I find that exercise, rather than making me tired, energizes me. So, what else was there to do today than to head over to the Smith Creek Greenway in Wake Forest? 

I hated having to stop after only 5 miles, but I've got things to do tonight. 

Funny how you can enjoy workouts more when you share the greenway with other runners. 

So now, it's back to the office. I'm staying here in WF for the week to teach while the kids are on the farm taking care of business there. Again I'm reminded of just how fragile life can be. Who knows how many more years God will give me to be active? But every time I work outdoors or go for a run, my heart swells up with thanksgiving to the One who makes all this possible. In the meantime, I'm really looking to this weekend's race in Colorado. I think it's gonna be a blast. There is nothing more fun than running a 10K with 50,000 other people. If you live near Boulder, I'll see you there :-)
